ENERGY CODE HORROR STORIES
OCTOBER 3 MARKS ONE YEAR OF THE NEW NYS ENERGY CODE!

It’s been one year since New York began enforcing its new energy code! Keeping up to date with all the different code changes and requirements can be frightening. But don’t take our word for it, read on for a true energy code non-compliance horror story, if you dare

THE SILENCE OF THE CERTIFICATE OF OCCUPANCYWe have had two separate projects where the Certificate of Occupancy was held up because the DOB found inconsistencies between the submitted energy analyses forms and the built conditions.   On both projects, it turned out that the architect had filed COMcheck using ASHRAE criteria, while the MEP engineer had filed using NYCECC due to poor communication. We couldn’t get the Certificates of Occupancy on either project until the issues were fixed, resulting delays and frantic clients and owners.” – Engineer, NYC

Don’t end up like this lost soul. Keep your projects moving forward by registering below for one of our upcoming courses. And check back as we continue to document the true terror of energy code non-compliance throughout the month of October.
To get the ultimate energy code cheat sheet, sign up to win a copy of “Code & Commentary to the Energy Conservation Construction Code of New York State.” Paid registration for a Conquering the Energy Code course is required. Limit of one entry per registration.

What time is it?

By Elizabeth Lopez  /  June 22, 2017

Whether your home is letting hot air in during the hot months or cold drafts during the cold months, air leaks can be costly. The average cost to heat and cool a household in the U.S. is around 2500 annually. If you are on a budget, one simple and least expensive way to save money is to caulk, seal and weather strip cracks. Aim to cover the biggest gaps first and work your way to the smallest nook and crannies (Note: if you are sealing cooling and heating ducts I recommend you hire a professional since they are more informed on what materials and methods to use)… https://www.energyproinsulation.com/blog-2/

Proper Insulation is key to keeping bills down and feeling comfortable in your home while doing so. Don’t keep letting your money literally go out the window, INSULATE.
